NETEX-G Program Flow

Artwork provides a complete GUI for using NETEX-G but other CAD companies may wish to call the engines from within their own GUI. The information below describes how the engines are organized and how to interface with the engine.

netex engine flow

An application that wishes to run NETEX-G must create a command line and an ascii configuration file (by default we call it a .njb for Nextex Job File). The calling application actually works with a program called netexmgr which deals with the complexities of calling the 4 underlying modules that perform the computations.

Most of the calling application's work will involved collecting all the info that is needed to produce the .njb file.
